When the Amarok (as a 2.0-liter four-cylinder) was tested by ANCAP more than a decade ago in 2011, it received a five-star rating.

All 2021 Volkswagen Amarok models are standard with front and rear airbags and anti-lock brakes, but no airbags for rear seat occupants – different from all competitors.
There is also no active safety technology like autonomous emergency braking, which means Amarok will not get five stars if re-evaluated in 2022.
